The base for our work in the community in slough is The Hangout.

The purpose of our work 

We work with at risk children to improve their engagement in learning and with at risk or NEET young people aged 12 – 25 to improve their skills and aspirations and re-engagement with education, training and employment.

We mainly work with young people aged 6 – 25 to improve their safety, health, and level of activity.

We also have a group aimed at ANYONE over 50! Please get in touch if you are over 50 and interested in art, IT, knitting, bingo or word search. We are also open to new ideas.

We work with individuals from different faith, ethnic and generational groups to improve community cohesion.
